Which GTX 460 should I get?

post #1 of 36
Thread Starter 
Both are @ $149.99 on Newegg

The MSI N460GTX Cyclone?


or the MSI N460GTX Twin Frozr II?

Pretty sure Twin Frozr is better; plus it looks nicer.

Since your TV is rather large, 42", I would actually suggest the Cyclone. It has a bigger memory bus and more of it.

If both are same price, of course go for twin frozr.

Just double check if the twin frozr is 768 mb or 1gb . I dont understand why twin frozr is the same price as cyclone

It's the 768MB version, I originally wanted to buy it because it came with Mafia II and Just Cause 2...now the deals over and IDK bout it. :[

Edit: The free games are back in stock now...guess I'll stick with the 260

between those two 768mb cards, i'd go with the Cyclone just because it's $10 cheaper AR and should perform just as well. if you want to shell out $30 more you can get a 1GB model. also, i pulled the trigger last week on my second card when they were still offering both free games. i'm going to sell the JC2 code (which can be activated on STEAM) for $20 if you're interested.

If you OC, I would say twin frozr. The Twin Frozr has 4 heatpipes instead of 2, and it has 6 sets of VRM instead of 4. I assume the 768 models share the same PCB as the 1GB models.

I just order the 1GB EVGA GTX 460...

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130591

Please tell me it's a good deal.

speaking from experience, try to avoid the Fermi cards that come with with normal 80mm FAN's, specially if you plan to Sli or put a second card next to it later down the road.

Get the EVGA, I think they have one with has the hamster cage fan,

I made the mistake of buying the 460 GTX which had a fan in the middle, overheated like mad, and with another card next to it it wouldn't last 30 seconds in furmark or 5 mins ingame mafia 2...

just my two cents.

ops sorry, just noticed that you bought the EVGA. Its a SE model, 256bit.. that means its just the bottom of the line.. could you perhaps cancel that order and get the EVGA 1GB 460GTX that is actually 364bit (or something) and make sure it has the hamster cage fan not the middle fan.
